The museum is the site in 1796 where Jenner invented a vaccination against the killer disease, Smallpox. Find out when the last case of Smallpox was in the world and how the World Health Organization helped to conquer the disease just 30 years ago. Edward Jenner is remembered today as the pioneer of the smallpox vaccination and the father of the science of Immunology. Smallpox was the most feared and greatest killer of Jenner's time. In today's terms it was as deadly as cancer or heart disease. It killed 10% of the population, rising to 20% in towns and cities where infection spread easily. Among children, it accounted for one in three of all deaths. Jenner called it the Speckled Monster.The Chantry is the house that Edward Jenner owned from 1785 until his death in 1823. The house that you see today dates from 1740s. It is thought there has been a building here since at least the Anglo-Saxon period. « less
